I happened to catch Obama’s speech introducing his new Supreme Court nominee earlier today.
Here’s a summary:
Because of her background, she is uniquely qualified to represent the poor and downtrodden. She went to private schools as a child, then to Princeton and Yale. Before becoming a judge, she was a partner at a commercial litigation law firm specializing in intellectual property litigation. Because she is a woman of color, she knows what it’s like to be denied the educational and professional opportunities that other Americans take for granted. She is a Yankees fan, but Obama hopes she doesn’t suffer from the prejudice of New England Senators.
